TMD is a prevalent condition that affects jaw functions like opening the mouth and chewing. Causes range from poor posture and jaw clenching to severe issues like lockjaw. Physical therapists play a crucial role in alleviating pain, improving jaw movement, and reducing jaw stress.
The therapeutic approach is centered on muscle relaxation, stretching, and breaking down scar tissue. Physical therapy is crucial to minimize complications like scar tissue and muscle stiffness, thereby enhancing the head and neck posture.
Combining physical therapy with Dr. Boucher’s prescribed splint therapy or bite guards—designed to position the jaw naturally—can significantly relieve TMJ discomfort and enhance overall jaw function, guiding the patient toward a more comfortable bite and alleviating TMD symptoms.
